Hi
My 2wk old baby has reflux, she's being sick about 2-3 times per day after feeds.
Has anyone got any tips on what I can do to help with the reflux.
Thankyou

My DD had reflux. She was constantly sick and had acid. She was treated by a paediatrician at 6 weeks old.
Start with your GP and ask for a referral.

Are you breast or bottle feeding? If bottle, you can get special milk which thickens and prevents some sickness.
Not so easy if breast.

Often the docs prescribe infant gaviscon, but frankly this is just a thickening substance and doesn't actually treat excess acid. It is more trouble than it's worth.

Do repost as suggested.
Don't let the washing get you down grin
